New 2hr ferry service to start between Hua Hin- Pattaya

Our neighbors to the West... many of us have a love for Thailand and it's certainly got plenty to talk about, so lets talk about it here so that it doesn't overwhelm our regular Cambodia sections.

Those boats that plied the Koh Kong > Snooky > Koh Kong route were death traps. They were designed for river runs, not the open sea.

The stretch of water between Pataya and Hua Hin is very much open sea. I think we can expect numerous cancellations like this due to the weather.
The best way to achieve this journey would be to have two boats running in opposite directions with both leaving at 6 to 6:30 AM in order to arrive on the other side before the morning winds pick up around 9 AM.

Four meter high waves in gulf of Thailand in that area? seems quite large to me, the wind would have to be really blowing.

further out to sea or such--perhaps, but that's pretty far up in the bay/coastal area for waves that large.

maybe some other issue was at hand?


just sayin'

its very shallow as seas go only average 190ft (atlantic ocean is average 11000ft) so maybe that has to do with high waves or rouge waves?

The first ferry service between Pattaya and Hua Hin will be launched on January 17 after a successful test run of the service from Pattaya to Hua Hin on Thursday following several postponements due to strong winds and high waves.

200 passengers who included Thai and foreign tourists, members of the media and locals were on board Royal One ferry at the Balihai pier in southern Pattaya for the journey to the fish market pier in Hua Hin. The entire trip took two and a half hours.
